this was very easy to assemble, very solid design and overall great desk/cockpit. BUT be warned the monitor mount is a very bad design. i wanted to use my 23" 3d monitor with this, but when vesa mounted the mount blocks all the display ports and power supply port for the screen. i then tried to mount 2 other 23 inch screens and again when vesa mounted the cockpits mount blocks all the ports, make sure you monitors ports face downward other wise the mount blocks them. if you use a 32" tv (which is what i'm using for now, and forced to play in the native 720p of it which sucks until i find a 1080p monitor that will mount) a 32" monitor mounts just fine and the ports are unobstructed, but every screen i've seen 23" or so the ports are blocked. so again, the rest of the design was great, but that one horrible design for the monitor mount makes the ozone an "ok" setup, rather than an "awesome" setup.

HI All, i ordered the Ozone on 09-03-13 and it arrived on 09-10-13. I started to open up the BIG box and there was a really nice looking seat and a little heavy, then there was all the part's and when I finally got everything unwrapped 30-40 mins. later, they was nicely packaged also. Everything had a really nice finish on them, It did impress me, NO problems at all with looks on the frame, Simply Gorgeous! Then I started to put it together in about 2 hours I had it finished (I took a couple breaks) But, it was Very Easy to put together. Next I set in the seat WHOoooo, Very Comfortable easy to slide forward and backwards and recline works very well also. This seat is Not a Cheap seat like on some other rig's that cost much more than the Obutto Ozone. This really Impressed me! You need this one!

I purchased this primarily for an gaming / office setup for long periods. The only reason i give it a 4 star is the lack of lumbar support in the chair, otherwise everything is great. It fits me perfectly 5'11, but i could see anyone over 6'3 having some issue with stretching their legs out. I plan to upgrade to the 3 monitor in the future with 3x 27" Asus LED displays.

I was already spending a lot of money on a good gaming PC, so I thought I might as well throw on the Obutto gaming cockpit to see what that was like. After a slightly frustrating setup, I can say that I'm really happy I picked up this "little" extra. The chair is very comfortable and the mount puts the monitor right in your face. It's a really cool way to experience my new computer. I think I could do with a little more table space, but all in all it's a great cockpit.

Man, I thought using a joystick was the height of realism until I got into my friends Obutto gaming cockpit. This thing is like playing in dream. It feels very realistic, with a comfortable seat that still puts me in prime control of all the action. It's got room for a joystick and pedals, so sometimes I feel like I'm in an actual cockpit. I don't think any of my other games will ever feel the same, either.

Great product. Does what it is supposed to do and does it well. For the price nothing beats it. Only problem I had was the mounting for my monitor. My monitor has the rear facing ports. Not obutto fault! Would definitely buy again.

For the price it can't be beat its well made my only problem with it is I got a few pieces that were stained with red rust that was easily fixed with a hint of black touch up paint that gave it a nice shine.Thank u Obutto for kick ass rig

WARNING: Long review, scroll to bottom for pros and cons!
I've been on the look out for a cockpit solution for years. Option one was to build my own out of wood (or learn to weld). Option two was a racing chair welded to a tiny metal frame (No monitor supports or anything) for more than the price of the oZone. Option three was just making due with a desk.
Consider the fact that a regular desk might cost you about the same amount, and suddenly the oZone starts to look better and better.
The oZone isn't without its flaws though, most of which may be fixed with their newer Revolution product (But that thing is far outside my price range). the oZone can get the job done though, you'll just have to spend a bit to get it up to speed.
I built my cockpit for flying fighter jets, so the lack of adjustment in the oZone's steering wheel mount wasn't an issue for me. I purchased the flight stick and throttle mount as well as the triple monitor mount.
The oZone is a big, heavy metal frame that feels tough enough to be mounted on a motion platform. It is held together by several bolts and nuts, with washers and stoppers. You may be a bit frustrated at first because there are essentially no instructions. Here is a hint: use the long bolts to link the two main frames (seat and monitor mount) together.
Adjustable parts are held in place by screws with big plastic nobs on them. Friction holds these parts in place, save for the monitor mount which has holes for the nob-screws to fit through, so don't worry about your precious gear falling far. The problem is that things like the keyboard mount are also held up by this friction screw, so when you swing it out of the way, it tends to lower its self. Again, they've fixed this with the swivel mount on the newer model, but that doesn't help us much does it!
My cockpit came wrapped in about 10 miles of bubblewrap and packing tape. It took me a good hour just to free it, but the parts and their thin layer of black coating were undamaged. In my case, one part (the main frame for the monitor section) was rusted a bit near the top. I figure these older model cockpits are out in some yard somewhere, but in my case it wasn't a big deal.
The chair is comfortable and adjustable. It functions EXACTLY like a car chair, as it probably is an off the shelf one. It can recline back far enough to turn your cockpit into an entry plug from Evangelion (or in other words, you could take a nap) and slides far enough forward and backwards to put your pedals where they need to be. But on that subject...
If you have Saitek's combat flight pedals, be aware that they do NOT fit in this frame properly. If you use the footrest / pedal platform that comes with the oZone, you won't have enough travel room to move the pedals more than an inch or so. If you remove the footrest and position the pedals just right, you can almost get a full range of movement before slamming against metal. I was very disappointed when I discovered all this, but I figure most people are probably using this cockpit for racing.
Also, if you have a Saitek x52 / 41 / pro, you'll need to get creative with mounting it. The throttle/stick platforms are too small for the suction cups to clasp, and there are no pre-drilled holes to mount via the mounting holes. You could probably use velcro or something though, and the Saitek gear does ok just sitting most of the time. You'll also probably like to be able to remove the joystick when you are not flying, as there doesn't seem to be any way to use a center-mount joystick and keyboard at the same time.
All in all, I'm happy with this product. It has its failings, but it is a great way to get a cockpit build up and running. I wish they would at least toss in a swivel mount for the keyboard, as that would really seal the deal. If you've got the cash, just remember, this thing costs about the same as a new video card, and it isn't going to be out of date in a few months. With three monitors, it is also a huge step forward in immersion, and even if you use your computer for work like I do, you'll find that this thing makes a great desk too.
+ Affordable cockpit solution
+ Doesn't feel cheap!
+ Ergonomic and adjustable
+ Adds greatly to the gaming experience
- No real instructions
- A bit of rust on some parts
- Keyboard trey doesn't function as expected (can't swing out of the way without it lowering)

This computer gaming chair is a nice little multi-tasker. I love gaming & iracing on my computer, but there are certain games only the console can play. But it's really easy to use my racing rig with the Xbox, which makes that a completely new experience. Forza is a new beast!

This Obutto gaming cockpit gives you the single best gaming experience out there. The seat is insanely comfortable, and it reclines to fit your posture. It's really customizable for any computing or gaming setup! The lifetime warranty is really nice assurance as well. Thrilled with this product and company!

The rig is very solid, easy to assemble & well made. Over all it is well worth the money. The cons are the seat is a tad narrow but I am a BIG guy, the dash is off center about 1 1/2 inches and the powder coat is very light. Had a little surface rust on several pieces but no biggie. But like I said for under $400.00 it cant be touched.

Great product and entry price for a sim cockpit. Quick delivery and satisfied with overall build quality.

I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in about the Obutto Ozone. I am 6 6" and 260lbs, as such finding anything ergonomic is rare. I find I have leg room and can sit comfortably for long PC gaming sessions in this thing. I was hesitant at first due to price but compared to a nice wood desk its just the same and waaaay more comfortable. So if your a big guy also give this thing a try, I love it.

I have to say that the only thing I like about this cock pit was the chair itself, a nice comfortable racing car chair fully adjustable. the only major flaw to this cockpit is the keyboard mount. it just doesn't hold its place at the adjusted height, because every time i have to push the keyboard away it just pushes itself back down causing me to constantly adjust its height every time. the other minor thing that i don't like was the instructions which was pretty much no instructions at all,.. Overall rating is a 4 star, I would have given this a 5 if they were to fix that major problem.just that constant adjusting the comfortable height of the keyboard mount made it not enjoyable as it should be. Would i recommend this cockpit? OH HELL YEAH I DO!, affordable sturdy cockpit, nice racing car chair fully adjustable, and I'm pretty sure they the revolution has a better keyboard mount that would solve my problem.

Did lots of research for the best cockpit around 350 and settled with this. pure awesomeness. I had also installed buttkicker gamer 2, my simulation experience is now top notch. will upgrade to r3volution later maybe after I have more fund. a little rust on some of the spots but it's normal for products shipping by sea from China. pardon my English but I highly recommend it to any sim racing lovers
by Matt Hoose – Mar 23rd 2013
I have been happy with this product for the last month or so. The only problem was that the wheel and center monitor were lined up but the seat was off to the right. i tried everything moving around parts flipping parts over nothing changed. so i had to buy a couple metal drill bits and drill some new holes in the seat frame where it bolted to the main frame, and move it oever to the left about 2 1/2 inches. to get everything centered up. all in all good product bit pricy for what it is but hey when i have a couple grand in pc and iracing. whats another 600 or so right ! After 10 years of online racing i finally broke down and bought a cockpit and glad i did. Its nice and solid looks cool helps me drive better due to the fact my office chair dont move back when i hit the brakes lol. cya on the tracks guys.
by Brandon D. – Mar 20th 2013
I have thoroughly enjoyed the chair on this awesome product. It's great for RTS and Flight Sim gaming, equally, and those are genres I play quite a bit of. The only thing I don't like is my Saitek Pro Rudder Pedals don't QUITE fit in the pedal area, which is what makes this a 4-star review instead of 5. Other than that, excellent product.
by D Chalk – Mar 14th 2013
Overall, very satisfied. Seat is excellent, comfortable and adjustable. Probably one of the best values out there IMHO!
Only issue is keyboard is designed in such a way as it tilts away from me. Makes using keyboard an option only when keyboard is off to side.

I considered holding off and getting the Obutto R3volution instead but in the end, it made more sense with my budget to purchase the Ozone instead. I read many reviews on both and I had some concerns about the flaws that others pointed out in the Ozone's design. My thought though was that several of the upgrades included with the R3volution are available to purchase as add ons for the Ozone so I could always add them in the future as necessary. My main concern was with the swinging keyboard and mouse tray that was replaced with the articulating tray on the R3volution and this is definitely the weakest point of the whole rig. Assembly took about four hours with the additional triple monitor mount but once everything was done, I can say that I was very happy with the results.
I'm using the Logitech G27 with the pedals inverted and mounted to a piece of MDF strapped to the frame. I haven't hard mounted everything yet but even without it, my racing experience has been taken to level of realism that I can't believe. The level of immersion with this rig and triple monitors is just incredible. I do have to make minor adjustments to set the rig up in racing or workstation mode but this is minimal. In about 30 seconds I can go from racing to playing Borderlands 2.
The seat is difficult to get in and out of and feels a little narrow but I have no problem sitting in it for hours without the discomfort I used to get from sitting in my office chair. Overall the build quality is fantastic and I would have no problem recommending this to anyone.
by Chris Welker – Jan 13th 2013
I spend hours iRacing. The seat is very comfortable and looks great. Easy to assemble.
